Whilst enjoying your day out at Weston, this dynamic and ever-changing corner of our world is worth a visit, whether you have an eye for artistic creations or simply enjoy seeing something new and different.
Originally built in 1767, the Art Gallery was unused for many years before becoming the subject of a total and most sympathetic restoration, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Now set beneath a splendidly characterful old beamed roof, you’ll find the Art Gallery in the building that houses the Granary Grill & Deli, and here you’ll discover monthly selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists from the UK and beyond, along with items on loan to the gallery from private collections. Visitors to the gallery can enjoy a coffee and homemade cake in the Granary Deli or lunch in the Grill.
The exhibitions in the Granary Art Gallery are organised by Weston Park’s Curatorial & Learning Department.
The Gallery is also available to hire for Group and Solo shows. For more information on hiring the Art Gallery, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winner of Channel 4′s Watercolour Challenge series in 2000. Rupert paints where he finds strong and unusual shapes which means he is equally happy to be studying a wrecked fighter jet as he is to be painting at night in a country church or to be drawing a fishing boat in Norfolk. Rupert thinks that strong draughtsmanship underpins most of his work and because he lacked the vivid imagination or reliable memory which many other artists are blessed with, he almost always paints directly from the subject.
11am – 4pm
Please note the Granary Art Gallery will be closed on Friday 27th April.
